ReceptionEdit

The Allmusic review by Don Snowden awarded the album 4 stars, stating, "Can't say this is the pick of the group's discs or even of Haden's The Montreal Tapes series, but the musicians play up to the occasion (Geri Allen, in particular, shines) and man, that version of "We Shall Overcome..."".[2]
